Easter 2017

After our spring break trip to the beach we came home for Easter weekend to celebrate with family. We had to dye our easter eggs of course. We tried a new method I read about using food coloring and shaving cream. It looked fun, it was fun, but the result was pretty disappointing. Not very vivid colors. 
You stir shaving cream with your colors and swirl it up then roll the boiled egg in it. 

Let the eggs rest for 15-20 minutes and rub off the shave cream.

We also got a little coloring egg roller kit. It was sort of like the liquid but more concentrated and you roll brush it on.

Kind of fun but they missed the dipping the eggs in cups of color.

The finished eggs drying!!
Then I took the girls to Goppy's church for their annual egg hunt. We have been going to this for years. I think we might be nearing the "too old" age. 
We sure look cute tho! I love any occasion to put them in pretty dresses...if they cooperate. You are divided by age and when they say go you run through the grass collecting eggs and candy. Not much hunting or hiding. They wish it was more of a challenge.

Lily off with the bigger kids.
Gemma got a ton!
Our cousins even joined us this year! They had a lot of fun.
Lily went for all eggs because she can't eat any of the candy with her expanders.
They had cookie decorating too.
The more sprinkles the better they say.
Don't forget the jumpy house and slide!! So much fun.
Then we needed to get home and rest up for Easter the next day. Gemma decided to go for curls with her sleep in sponge rollers. 
Easter morning they rise bright and early to hunt for their baskets. This year the basket had new bike/scooter helmets. Looking good!! That bunny knew we needed new helmets. One kitty and one light up sparkle. 
There were plenty of other goodies too.
Tiny lego set with a skate board.
The worlds tiniest lego bunny twins. They put these together in no time.
Oh and don't forget the tec decks. Finger skate boards.
Gemma got clip on earrings she has been wanting for a long time. Looks good with those curls. 
All dressed up in our easter finest.
We went to church at Ascension with all our family. Cousin Reese is so cute we just love her.
After church is the butterfly release. We had some lively ones this year.
Then it was over to Uncle E & Rach's house for brunch and egg hunt. Littlest ones first.
Now it's a free for all.

Reese and Gemma had to do a song and dance to earn a dollar.

Goppy brought confetti eggs for us to smash.

Then we tried to attempt family photos. Pretty sure we should have done that earlier in the day.

Then we tried the whole group with the timer. It was just about melt down time.
Silly face was much more successful.
We came home for some down time and then went to the park for a scooter ride with our new helmets. Glad everyone is back to health and had a fun day!
